“Lovely cottage pity about the parking”
Reviewed May 26, 2017 for a stay in May 2017

This is a beautiful cottage, well decorated and extremely comfortable, a home from home in fact. There is a lovely little garden with a table and chairs where we enjoyed a bottle of wine in the sunshine. The next door neighbour Diane was extremely friendly and we enjoyed a few chats with her. I did miss my dishwasher but for a week it wasn't too much of a hardship. The cottage is situated on a narrow street which is basically only wide enough for one car at a time and is also used by numerous farm vehicles. The residents all park on one side of the street, unfortunately the two neighbours opposite Myrtle Cottage both park in the middle of their house walls so no one else can park there although there is certainly enough room for two cars on either side of the entrance archway. We were able to park further up on the grass verge but this wasn't very convenient when loading and unloading the car on a daily basis especially with our older dog. The local Fox and Hounds is very friendly and everyone meets there on a Thursday night before the Fish and Chip van comes at 7.30, The Wensleydale Heifer is fantastic for food and well worth a visit .

“Homely, cosy, beautifully presented cottage. A must!!!!!”

My best friend and I spotted Myrtle Cottage immediately when viewing places to stay and we both loved it, it was even better in reality. There is nothing you can fault. Everything has been carefully thought of to ensure whoever stays here has the most hassle free stay. The attention to detail with all the decor, furnishings and quaint little touches are of a very high standard and the cottage was scrupulously clean.
Our holiday was purely for peace and relaxation and we certainly achieved that. Any neighbours we saw were so friendly and local trips to Leyburn were enjoyed as it is also a very friendly town. We also visited Hawes to the Wensleydale Creamery and drove to York on another day. The scenery is stunning. We didn't care if it rained most of the time as we loved the cottage so much anyway.
Communications between myself and owner Aileen were beyond first class.

Like another guest who has stated on here, I am amazed that more people haven't written reviews as the guest book in the cottage is full of compliments.
Would HIGHLY recommend to stay here, we loved it :0))))

The owners put a lot of love and effort in this cottage. We have stayed in Myrtle Cottage before and gave it a great tripadvisor review. Well we would like to give it another great review. 12 months on and still the excellent standards throughout. Clean, warm, cosy. Decor & soft furnishings updated from last year and all in character of this delightful cottage. The wood burning stove is very warm and we even had Halloween candles left out for us. Neighbours very friendly and remembered us from last year. Local shop keeper was fantastic and reserved newspapers and bread for us on a daily basis. Local pub Fox & Hounds excellent value for money and the Proprietors very friendly & welcoming. The Wensleydale Heifer Restaurant was a lovely holiday treat on our last night. The early bird menu great value for money. Our 14 year old son enjoyed table tennis at the village church hall. Lovely village and all welcoming. We will be back again.

It's a shame this place doesn't have more Trip Adviser reviews because the visitors book in the cottage is bursting with excellent reviews... and we added ours too. The cottage had everything we needed for us to enjoy a comfortable, relaxed break with our 9 month old baby and our dog. They've thought of everything! Shame the weather wasn't better so we could make use of the beautiful little flowery courtyard out back. If there was anything we'd forgotten, Leyburn was only a 5 min drive away with a Co-op that sold the essentials.

As mentioned, the weather didn't allow for much walking but the folder provided by the owner is full of info about walks in and around the area. You definitely wouldn't be stuck for things to do. All-in-all, this place come recommended if you need a little quiet place to base yourself while you explore a picturesque corner of Yorkshire.

“Myrtle Cottage is a cosy, well situated cottage.”

This cottage is situated in the beautiful Dales, walking country in easy reach. There are interesting places to visit, such as Leyburn, Richmond, Fountains Abbey, Ripon, and many more.
There are local places to eat, which are dog(and people) friendly, such as The Hungry Heffer, and the pub on the green in West Burton. All very welcoming.
The scenery in the area is spectacular, with many beautiful waterfalls, and there are castles to visit, such as Bolton Castle..
We enjoyed our stay, even though it was wet!

The owners of this cottage should be proud of themselves. On arrival it was clean, warm and welcoming, with a lovely note and cake waiting for us. It was bigger than we expected and very well equipped, dont worry if you have forgotten anything because it is there, even a box of various mobile phone chargers. The back garden is lovely. The bedrooms were spacious, decorated lovely. The shower room complete with double shower and heated towel rail, plenty of hot water and clean towels. The kitchen has every utencil you need with a large fridge/freezer, excellent oven, washing machine and again plenty of hot water. The lounge is very cosy with its wood burning stove. The surrounding area is lovely with great views and plenty of walks to other lovely villages.
We would recommend this cottage to anyone and we will definately be back.
